I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Pontllanfraith I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Pontllanfraith for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
